Users of Alcian blue should take note and may need to consider alternatives:
An intermediate chemical in the production leading to Alcian Blue is hazardous
and no company is prepared to manufacture this compound. As a consequence
Alcian Blue, except for any remaining old stock, is no longer available.
ProSciTech has no more Alcian Blue available.

Our supplier is working with the Staining Commission to produce an alternative
stain that will suit most of the Alcian Blue applications. This may be
available about April 2000.
